    Default package feeding

    I plan to build a few package this spring. I can imagine how to build boxes, I can find open cans but the little machine to close the can is really expensive, even used. I see in this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DtZPBH7TzNY that those people don't use cover on the cans. Is it some kind if candy?. In that case, does somebody has a special formula?
    thanks for your input.

    I couldn't get a good enough look at their cans to see what you were talking about. I didn't watch the whole video just skimmed through it. Fondant would probably work at keeping a package alive during transit.

    I found it on the video. Looks like they are using a candy board mixture and dumping it in the cans. Lots of recipes out there for candy boards that could be used.

    A can of peaches in light syrup fits perfectly!
    I think it a 28-32 oz can.
    A new quart paint can could work with some modification.
    Another option maybe opening a can with the kind of opener that doesn't leave sharp edges and using silicone to seal... I've never tried

    Why doe it have to be metal? There are thousands of plastic containers with removable lids for a throw away application.
